More information about Fireflies

Somewhere in the Jim Crow South, the sky is on fire. A pregnant Olivia’s fierce speech writing is the sole force behind her charismatic husband Charles and his successful Movement to galvanize people to march towards freedom. When four little girls are bombed in a church, Olivia and Charles’ marriage is threatened – as this tragedy and years of civil unrest leave Olivia believing that “this world ain’t no place to raise a colored child.”

"Fireflies" is a startling world premiere by Donja R. Love, and the second part of a trilogy beginning with "Sugar in Our Wounds" (MTC). Saheem Ali ("Sugar in Our Wounds") directs. Featuring Khris Davis ("Sweat," “Atlanta”) and DeWanda Wise (Netflix’s “She’s Gotta Have It”).

“An artistic, literary and conceptual triumph that must be seen.” —The Fordham Observer on "Sugar in Our Wounds," Part 1 of this trilogy
